DIRECTIONS

  • Spread desired amount of mayonnaise on each ciabatta's top and bottom.
  • Layer the ciabatta bottoms with shredded lettuce, salt and peppered tomato slices, onion and pepper rings, mozzarella, basil leaves, the deli meats, and sliced olives. (NOTE: You can mix-up the order of these ingredients to your liking.)
  • Drizzle with vinaigrette and sprinkle with red pepper flakes. Cover with the ciabatta tops.
  • Cut the ciabatta sandwiches in half on the diagonal and wrap in plastic wrap or waxed paper. Take a few books and set on top of the sandwiches to weigh them down and soak in the vinaigrette.
  • Unwrap and enjoy!
